    Hey everyone! I wanted to start a thread for the appreciation of turkeys as pets! I have two black Spanish turkeys who are sweet hearts! They are three months old, my tom is Shadow and my hen is Peep :) I love them so much! Everyone else is like turkeys as pets?? Cause they only think of them as food, so annoying! Let's all post pics of our pets on this thread and talk about our babies :) here's mine! I also have a week old blue slate poult <3

    Sorry but that is not a Blue Slate poult. I raise Blue Slates and what you have appears to be a Self Blue (aka Lavender) poult. The Blue Slate poults have a much darker blue gray color and at that age are starting to show black spots.
